Healthy Tips For Having A Healthy New Year

By George Napoli

Every time that ball in New York City comes down and ushers in a new year, a whole new group of people join the ranks of those past who have resolved to maintain a healthy new year. This is a reasonable tactic because January symbolizes a clean slate. You get a chance to redress any and all of the things that you wished you had accomplished the previous 365 days but did not. With that in mind, let's look at some of the things you can do have a healthier year.

Perhaps the healthiest thing you can do for yourself is to stop smoking. It is detrimental to your good health on all sorts of levels. It can be off putting to others. It is expensive. So quitting is probably a really good idea.

Losing a little or a lot of weight seems to top people's lists. This is also a good idea. Obesity has been linked with a number of health problems. And of course, you will simply feel better about yourself and feel better physically too. Taking it slowly will help you see results and stay with the program.

Cutting back on drinking alcohol is sometimes a big resolution issue. Actually, doing this might go hand in hand with your other resolution to lose weight. Alcohol has no nutrients or health benefits; it is just empty calories. And like the cigarettes, it can take huge chunks out of your wallet.

Making new friends can do wonders for your health. Friends are invaluable assets. Moreover, if you are trying to lose weight, quit smoking, or cut down on alcohol, they can prove to be positively supportive, if not inspirational.

A new January 1st is a good time to reflect on years past and figure out what changes you can make. Everyone can forget the disappointments of the old year and start anew. Before you know it, you will be doing it all over again.
